Albert Heijn will place hundreds of fast chargers for electric cars in the parking spaces near the shops. This year, 120 fast chargers are to be delivered to branches in the Netherlands and Belgium, each with two charging points. In 2025, the super hopes to have at least 2000 of those charging points.

Albert Heijn is working on this with Eneco eMobility, with whom an agreement has been signed about the construction. People will soon be able to power their cars while shopping. In doing so, the company is responding to the growing number of electric cars that it sees in the parking lots.

The chain also announces that all Albert Heijn stores will be free of gas by 2023. According to Albert Heijn, this will achieve an additional CO2 reduction of 1.8 percent. New stores have been built gas-free for years. Branches have also been made gas-free during renovations for some time. As a result, three quarters of the branches have now switched off from gas.

Since 2018, the large gritter from Zaandam has reduced its CO2 emissions by 92 percent, according to its own statement. The chain mainly owed this to its switch to Dutch wind energy for all its electricity at the beginning of last year. This green electricity is supplied by Eneco.
